Splattered Across the Web: New Star Trek

So you might remember earlier this year, when Paramount sent out promotional images of the upcoming GI JOE flick to all of the major movie sites.

Not too surprisingly, they’ve done the same today with the first images from JJ Abrams‘ relaunch of the Star Trek franchise.  Being the good net pal I am, I’ve scooped them all up and posted them in a gallery below.

Personally, I’m going to be coming into this flick as a strong non-fan of the Trek universe, but given the cast, I think I’ll walk away from the movie having enjoyed it.

What do you think?

Adam West Presents…THE WATCHMEN!

I know, that sentence makes no sense, but apparently, it’s because of the swinging 60’s rendition of Batman that we’ll get to see Watchmen hit the screens as intended this March.

To get you up to speed, Fox submitted an injunction to prevent Warner Bros from releasing Watchmen next year, claming that they still had legal rights to the property.

You’ll never believe what might make Fox give the go ahead, if the always interesting Lying in the Gutters is to be believed…

Says them:

[D]o Fox really want to make a “Watchmen” film of their own? Do they want the money from the Warners “Watchmen” film? Do they want a cut? A payoff? Or just holding up a rival?

None of the above. Sources tell me that Fox want the 1960s Batman TV series. Currently Fox own the TV footage, but Warner Bros own the characters and trademarks, via their ownership of DC Comics. The rights to a DVD release have been held up for a long time now, and this case looks like it may be the instrument to release them.

Oh, Fox will get a wodge of cash as well – many millions of dollars it seems. But it seems they also want the rights to release the Adam West-starring Batman on DVD, something long denied fans of the series. And Warners will get the “Watchmen” film, to release as planned.

I guess we’ll all have to celebrate by doing the Batusi…

I Am Back!

Sorry for the delay in upkeep, kids.

Since we last spoke, I got a new job, got accustomed to my new schedule, and hosted the greatest art extravaganza of all time.

In any case, I’ll finally be posting somewhat regularly again, and adding my snarky commentary on all things nerdy.  You’ll rue the day you missed me.

Been To Lately?

If not, you really should visit it.

We’ve announced the first of two house bands for the show on September 20th, profiled all of the artistic talent on the card, and if that wasn’t enough, we’ve posted the Topic Suggestion thread, where you, dear reader, get to be a part of the action!

Need more reason to keep checking between now and September 20th?  We’ve got exclusive announcements coming on the fantastic vendors invading The Ottobar, including images of our FIRST ACTION FIGURE, plus images of the “sparring” that occurred a few weekends back in an undisclosed location in Washington, DC.
